Villanova's Maalik Wayns scored 5 points in 12 minutes of play. Wayns broke a 31-31 tie with 4:14 left in the first half, putting the USA squad ahead for good. Villanova recruiting target Dom Cheek scored 2 points with 5 minutes of play. The story, located on the USA Basketball website is "USA Men’s U18 National Team Victorious Over Venezuela 82-73".
